Reviews Elsewhere – Bi The Way by Lois Shearing

I came across this review on the Scene website, and I wanted to share it with you because one of the things we know is that LGBTQ+ folks are more likely to deal with mental health issues, and also suffer a higher rate of suicide. So while the book is about being Bi, and not directly about mental health, during Suicide Prevention Week I think it’s important to share resources for groups who often struggle with seeing their own stories told. Based on the review, I think this book seems like exactly that type of thing, a voice of an underserved group.

Sharing – New children’s book uses sea creatures to teach kids ages 4 to 8 how recognize and talk about abuse

No, it isn’t fair that we have to have books to teach children how to protect themselves, but it’s reality. I don’t want small children to have to learn about the possibility of being abused, but leaving them uneducated and more vulnerable is not an option.

Oh, the other thing I appreciate about this book? It is focused on the danger from people the child already knows. Our “stranger danger” approach to child abuse has been terribly lacking for decades. I’m glad to see someone taking that on.
